It's testament to just how useless they were that only 3 actual politicians ran for the Democratic nomination, one of whom made zero mark on the contest. If they'd been any good at all we could've seen a field better populated by candidates who presented a real alternative to Hillary.
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Clinton's 08 election co-chair, shill for payday loans in Florida, all that tasteful goon shit. Obama sure suffered a lot of Hillary's lackeys shitting up the system, for all the trouble they put him through.
I'm also sceptical of everyone's belief that the Republicans will fall in line. The majority of Republican voters? Probably. But I still think the majority of the establishment and the politicians, particularly those in Blue and Purple states, will distance themselves from Trump.
Falling in line is what Republicans do, and it's not like there's an alternative to split their vote like the Green Party. Giving them a Clinton to rally against just insures the rhetoric to do their duty will be pumped in early and often, so even if some do get scared away by Trump I don't believe a noticeable portion of regular voters will flee to Hillary. Moneyed interests spread their efforts like a roulette table anyway, I don't think either Clinton or Trump represents a losing scenario for them.
